Textbook manuscript: Principles of Calculus Modeling: An Interactive Approach by Donald Kreider, Dwight Lahr, and Susan Diesel.

COD Web Site: The Calculus on Demand (COD) web site contains the lecture-page(s) for the course. Each day below is linked (Lec column) to these pages, and also to the textbook section-pages (Sec column).

Math 3 homework: There are WeBWorK homework problems corresponding to each class. The assignments and their due-dates can be found by clicking "WeBWorK login" on the sidebar, or by accessing WeBWorK from the COD pages.

Math 3 final exam: The final is scheduled by the Registrar to take place on Saturday, December 3 at 11:30 a.m. We will let you know as soon as she announces the room number.
